Can you believe there is no stamping done on this card? When I started to make it, I never gave it a thought, it just happened. I looked at it and said, "Wait a minute, there is no stamp or ink on this one." I must say I do love the results.
The banner is cut from the, now retired, Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! and it is actually vellum. I think the Petal Pink color made for a very pretty design. From Soft Sea Foam cardstock, I used the Petal Pop-Up 2 Dies from Taylored Expressions for the dimensional flower and attached it using foam tape. The Hello Die is one of the free little dies I received from Taylored Expressions as a thank you for an order. I cut five out of Smoky Slate cardstock and glued them together to add dimension to the sentiment. I used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen to add some shimmer to the flower. For the finishing touch, I added a clear gem to the flower center.
As you can see in the flower close-up, the sparkle pen added just the right amount of shimmer and gave the flower a wee bit of personality. It is really pretty in real time.
The sketch I used is from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. For all the challenge details, click the image below.
